---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The following two statements are Null Hypotheses written in English. For each, rewrite the null using mathematical symbols and notation as shown in the ClassPak. The statement in parentheses refers to the Alternative Hypothesis for each.

5. On average IU students go out 2.5 nights or more per week. (The alternative hypothesis is that IU students go out less than 2.5 times per week.)

Ho: μNights >= 2.5
Ha: μNights < 2.5

6. On average IU students drink exactly 5 1/2 drinks in an average night out. (The alternative hypothesis is that IU students do not drink 5 1/2 drinks per night out.)

Ho: μDrinks = 5.5
Ha: μDrinks ≠ 5.5

Use SPSS to calculate a p-value for each of the null hypotheses you have written in 5 and 6 above:

As a result, students who engage in academic dishonesty are subject to a series of sanctions from failure on an assignment to failure for the course to a referral to the appropriate administrator. Your submission of the exam indicates that you are aware of the university’s policies and agree to follow them.
Directions: Please complete the exam using MS Word. All of your work must be shown and typed to receive full credit. Exams that are written by hand and scanned or photographed will not be graded. The exam is due to Blackboard Monday, April 14, 2014 by 6 pm for CCJ 4701-U01 or Wednesday, April 16, 2014 by 6 pm for CCJ 4701-U04. There will be no exceptions. Any students who do not submit the exam to Blackboard by the respective due date will have to come to the university to take an exam with me. Good luck!
1. A researcher wants to know if there was a difference between urban and rural jurisdictions in the hiring of female police officers last year. In urban jurisdictions (N = 77), the mean number of females hired was 9.65 (s = 4.17). Police departments in nonurban areas (N = 84) hired an average of 6.80 females (s = 4.16). Using an alpha of .05, test the null hypothesis that there is no difference between the means.

...objective.
Research questions are the questions asked in order to achieve the objective. According to Farrugia et al. , an effective research question should “specify the population of interest, be of interest to the scientific community and potentially to the public, have clinical relevance and further current knowledge in the field” and be compliant with current ethical standards (Farrugia et al. 2010). The study authors further suggest using the FINER criteria in order to develop an effective initial research question. This delineates the research question into several component parts to analyze in detail the efficacy of the research question and if, among all the available or visible possible questions, the question chosen is the most effective research question to guide the study. For example, according to Jackson, a research question may state “do science majors score higher on intelligence tests then students in the general population” (Jackson 2011). This question guides the course of the research study and guides researchers in setting up the study effectively and accurately. It is important, throughout the course of research, to ensure that additional questions do not cloud the initial research question (Farrugia et al. 2010). This requires a focus on the original...

A chi-square test (also chi squared test or χ test) is any statistical hypothesis test in which the
sampling distribution of the test statistic is a chi-square distribution when the null hypothesis is true,
or any in which this is asymptotically true, meaning that the sampling distribution (if the null
hypothesis is true) can be made to approximate a chi-square distribution as closely as desired by
making the sample size large enough. The Chi-Square (
) test is the most popular non-parametric
test/methods, to test the...

...University StudentsDrinking: The Role of Motivational, Social and
Environmental Factors
Shwetank Powar
Christ University
Despite the increased efforts in raising awareness about alcohol abuse and its negative consequences, there seems to be very little improvement in the situation among university students. University students seem to have earned a reputation as heavy drinkers. Studies suggest that university students report higher levels of alcohol drinking in contrast with the non-students of the same age (Johnston et al., 1991). Inappropriate amounts of consumption and higher reports of binge drinking have become a major source of concern for the society. Binge drinking is drinking 5 or more drinks in a row for men and 4 drinks for women, at least once in the past 2 weeks. The present review of five studies made across developed countries, aims at understanding the motives, attitudes, demographic co-relatives and the influencing factors involved in drinking behaviour among university students and its effects on their lives. Five articles from various reputed journals were researched to study this phenomenon and understand it...

Population proportion

Is the opposite of the null hypothesis

...Are There Drinking Motives for College Students

Are There Drinking Motives for College Students?
Studies have shown that there are drinking motives for college students (Mohr, Armeli, Temple, Todd, Clark, & Carney, 2005). Other studies have also shown multiple drinking motives such as social (you can loosen up and feel more confident), enhancement (it gives you a false sense of security and makes you think you can do anything better than anybody), conformity (you want to be part of the crowd), and coping ( it’s easier to just drown your sorrows in beer and liquor) (Martens, Rocha, Martin, & Serrao, 2008). (Berkowitz & Perkins, 1986) gave the following drinking motivations: to enhance sociability or social interaction, to escape negative emotions or to release otherwise unacceptable ones, or simply to get drunk.
The diagnostic instruments used in Martens et al (2008) are: Drinking Motives Measure (DMM), a 20-item measure designed to assess four motives for alcohol use; Daily Drinking Questionnaire (Collins, Parks, & Marlatt, 1985) to assess participants’ use of alcohol; and Rutgers Alcohol Problem Index (RAPI: White & Labouvie, 1989) as a measure of problems experienced as a result of...

Formal Essay 3
Binge Drinking Among College Students
College is considered the first leap into independence for young adults. It is a strange, new place to discover and make a place for oneself for the next couple years to come. Sometimes this is the first taste of independence in a person’s life, which is not always a good thing. When a person is thrown into a place of responsibility and freedom there is almost always going to be new feelings of curiosity, rebellion, stress, and anxiety. These feelings are factors in why college students partake in binge drinking, but not the greatest one. I believe that the greatest factor of college binge drinking is the need to feel confident and accepted; a lot of the time, this comes from peer pressure. Binge drinking has become a huge concern in American society. There have been many proposed resolutions, but none have solved the problem at hand.
Peer pressure is a huge factor in everything a person does in life. Naturally someone is going to want to “fit in” or “be cool,” as we sometimes hear, with his or her friends and peers. This is where the pressure originates from in American society. If one’s friends are always drinking and partying that person is going to feel isolated from any kind of social life. In turn, that person is going to want to “fit in” and is going to start fallowing their...
